Norwegian Grammy Plan Not There Yet

When Norwegian announced that its newest ship, the Getaway, was going to feature Grammy Award-winning entertainment, it sounded like a promising venture.

Alas, at least perceptually, it still has a ways to go.

This week, Norwegian proudly announced "three exciting artists" whom will be performing on the Getaway, sailing 7-day Caribbean cruises from Miami.

Ready?

Sugar Blue. Carolyn Malachi. Roddie Romero.

Hmm. They are, indeed, either winners of or nominated for Grammy Awards. Sugar Blue is known as the "Jimi Hendrix or Charlie Parker of the harmonica." Carolyn Malachi, in addition to her Grammy-nominated single, is a "philanthropic social activist." Roddie Romero is a "renowned Grammy-nominated Louisiana artist" who has played "many of the world's most prestigious venues and festivals."

Let's me straight about one thing: Nobody questions that these performers are good. They're probably very good. However, to link them as Grammy headliners…

Are they that Grammy good?

The attraction, don't you think, still has a ways to go?
